13:40 - Peggy George (Final residency day at Bissonet Plaza Elementary Twisted Tales)

14:01 - Peggy George
those are just a couple of examples of what happens during the residency with Dianne

14:40 - Peggy George
very clever!!!

15:38 - Peggy George
that structured worksheet really helps them to be creative with their responses

16:04 - Peggy George
that is really helpful!!! it's much more than fill in the blanks!

17:02 - Peggy George (The Cajun Cornbread Boy)

17:10 - Peggy George (Educator’ Guide to the Cajun Cornbread Boy)

17:32 - Rawya Shatila
Is there a printable template?

17:59 - Rawya Shatila

18:06 - Peggy George
that would be fantastic! I'll add it to the Livebinder :-)

19:07 - Peggy George
Dianne, how do you have the students share what they are doing with these activities? Do they get to see and discuss each other's worksheet ideas?

19:30 - Peggy George
they're learning such great vocabulary!!

19:56 - Peggy George
Hi Sawa! Welcome!

20:05 - Sawa 1
Hi Peggy!

20:51 - Peggy George
Do the students ever video record themselves reading their stories?

21:02 - Peggy George

21:09 - Peggy George
Ratpunzel!!! Love it!!!

21:26 - Rawya Shatila
heheheh nice idea

21:45 - Rawya Shatila

22:38 - Peggy George (Story Collection from Dianne)

23:28 - Peggy George
Please post your questions for Dianne as we go along and Lorie will save them and ask her during Q/A

24:18 - Peggy George
I LOVE these stories!!!!

24:23 - Rawya Shatila
me toooo

24:32 - Peggy George (Educator’ Guide to the Cajun Cornbread Boy)

25:01 - Peggy George
that's a great idea to use a Venn diagram for these comparisons! Really makes them visible!

25:52 - Peggy George
Please tell us more about how you manage Skype author visits with students.

26:13 - Peggy George (Storytelling links)

26:42 - Patti Ruffing
How have you had students publish their finished stories? blog?

26:42 - Peggy George
Wonder why that is? Kids are getting to listen to classic folk tales and fairy tales?

27:00 - Susie @shighley
A lot of my students don't know them, or nursery rhymes, either

27:05 - Peggy George
do parents forget about them when they are reading to the kids?

27:16 - Peggy George
that's really interesting to me!

27:30 - Eileen
Yes, the kids do enjoy the history of where the classic story comes from.

27:49 - Peg Volak
I teach 2nd and they often don't know them....yes, @ Susie, no nursery rhymes too! We have Fairy Tale Friday at one point in the year (then, folk tales, and fables....Fridays are fun)

28:05 - Susie @shighley
In some cases, I think some young children now spend more time with electronics, videos, etc

28:07 - Peggy George
I think some of those classic fairy tales even appear on a banned book list. So sad!

28:25 - Susie @shighley
The Grimm brothers really were grim at times!

28:26 - Peggy George
Love that idea Peg!!!

28:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Dianne once Skyped with a class in Philadelphia, while she was in my classroom doing a project with my students. It was great for my students to witness her presenting to others via Skype while she was in our room.

29:14 - Peggy George
thanks for sharing that Paula! Super idea!

30:03 - Peggy George
a list of story prompts would be a great starter! then they can add their own ideas to that :-)

30:13 - Eileen
Yes, a great way of encouraging revision.

31:02 - Peg Volak
Dianne, I could be another class near Philly that you could Skype with! If you ever need an audience! :)

31:25 - Peggy George
there are lots of awesome writing resources on this site (including writing and journal prompts) :-)

32:16 - Peggy George
be sure to spend some time browsing on her web site! I've included just a few things in the Livebinder.

32:17 - Eileen
Wonderful Dianne, thank you!

32:39 - Peggy George (Website)

33:16 - Peggy George
Google Hangouts done through YouTube Live are really good now

33:29 - fidel
Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm.

33:31 - Peggy George

33:52 - Peggy George
the hands-on experiences are so valuable with an author!

34:05 - Peggy George (Follow Dianne on Twitter)

34:29 - Anthippi Harou
The topic of this year's etwinning project my sixth grade EFL learners are engaged in is 'Retelling favourite fairy tales'. Italian, Polish and Greek students worked on shared google docs. One of the stories is this It needs editing like the rest of the collaborative stories.

34:31 - Peggy George (Dianne’ residency examples)

34:48 - Peggy George
that is fantastic Anthippi! Thank you for sharing that!!

34:57 - Peggy George
Can I post that in our Livebinder Anthippi?

35:32 - Anthippi Harou
I have no problem!

35:38 - Peggy George (Tim Sheppard: Storytelling Resources for Storytellers)

35:49 - Peggy George
thanks Anthippi!

36:09 - Susie @shighley
I think some of it is because of the parents as well

36:23 - Peg Volak
The first week of school is a great time to have some fun with Nursery Rhymes!

36:31 - Peggy George
How do you teach them storytelling skills? You are so animated when you tell stories!

36:38 - Peg Volak
Thank you!

36:58 - Peggy George
Once Upon a Dime :-)

37:53 - Peggy George
they just need a little courage and confidence :-)

38:21 - Peggy George
those are great suggestions!

38:39 - Peggy George (Storytelling links)

39:03 - Peggy George
never knew that! don't rest your eyes on one person more than 3 seconds :-)

39:13 - Eileen
I just had a 4th grade student asked if he could write a comedy. But this is during a study of regions of the US.. LOL

39:43 - Peggy George
Do you ever do cloze activities where you're telling a story and stop and leave out a word so they can add possible words?

39:49 - Susie @shighley
I would think that learning the nursery rhymes could help them build confidence with their reading

39:51 - Peggy George
haha Eileen!

40:12 - Peggy George
What do you think of Reader's Theater activities?

41:01 - Peggy George

41:18 - Peggy George
thanks Paula for taking the mic!!! :-)

41:23 - Eileen
Yes, I think we could do a Readers Theater about traveling through the U SA like the book United Tate's of America

41:38 - Peggy George
when kids see their teacher so engaged and animated they will be too :-)

41:52 - Peggy George
yes Eileen!!

42:11 - Peggy George
hahaha! teachers high and might :-)

42:14 - Peggy George

42:25 - Eileen
We'd really like to Skype with a class in each region if the US. Maybe Paula would join us.😉

42:36 - Peggy George
glad you can't hear me laughing right out loud!!! She is so funny!

42:55 - Peggy George (Author/Illustrator Links)
